Five minutes with Marc Begg, Global Sales Leader - Navtech Radar Ltd

Can you please share a little about yourself with our visitors?

Navtech makes safer roads. Our award winning solution ClearWay has been adopted by leading Road Authorities throughout the world as the system of choice for increasing safety and throughput on roads networks. ClearWay is a versatile solution and has been deployed for uses as diverse as Incident Detection, Debris/Pedestrian/Animal Detection, Journey Time Monitoring, Traffic Flow & Density and Queue detection.

Can you please tell us why you chose to exhibit at CiTTi 2019?

Navtech sees the CiTTi event as a great opportunity to share its innovative use of radar technology to a broader audience of traffic and transport experts.

What will you be sharing with visitors to the exhibition?

Navtech will be showing how radar sensor data can be utilised by authorities in an urban environment (not just motorways) to report on real-time road usage, alert when incidents or anomalies in traffic behaviour occur and through data analytics, learn to predict and act prior to incidents occurring.

What do you feel are the biggest challenges facing the industry at the moment?

Couple an increase in the urban growth population, with the growing requirements of transportation and traffic and you will find the roads of today are not designed to meet the demands of tomorrow.  One of the biggest challenges faced by authorities today is how to maximise (traffic/people/goods) flow around and through its network. Future design needs to satisfy this growth while keeping the safety of road users and pedestrians as an overarching necessity.
